Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Try as we can, celebrity boxing is becoming more and more essential by the hour.
Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson – perhaps even better known as Chad Ochocinco all those years later – will be making his own trip to the boxing ring according to an ESPN report. Specifically, Johnson will be competing in the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Logan Paul undercard event, which is scheduled to come down on June 6, 2021 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
For now, the bout is likely to be booked for four or six three-minute rounds. Additionally, while he has yet to be an announced opponent, Johnson is expected to face a scholarship / celebrity athlete rather than a professional boxer in what will be his first crossover in the ring.
Granted, if the Paul brothers and other random YouTube stars are officially considered professional boxers … it clouds the waters regarding potential enemies. For what it’s worth, Johnson has worked his hands at Mayweather’s gym in the past during NFL off-seasons, so perhaps the controversial former Bengal can impress in his “pro” debut.
He really can’t be worse than this reggae singer in Jake Paul’s last boxing match.
This is the level of small / badass that all fighters should aspire to.
Oof, I’m a huge fan of Eddie Alvarez but our boy sounds a little crazy here…

I hope Mike Perry will join the Diaz team. They may not help with head movement or footwork, but extra bulk might help “Platinum!” “

Fans are in the stands, slapping each other in the face again. Nature heals!
Rafael Fiziev doesn’t like to be ignored by Kevin Lee.
I understand why the top 15 don’t want to fight someone outside of the top 15. But don’t act like you’re better and ignore calls. You can just say no. Soon the tables will turn and these notes will be very different. Tag someone who won’t say no to the challenge

Hopefully Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship offers dental coverage.
A 1-2-3 finds its target and interrupts a counter with the right hand – this is why “closing the door” with the left hook is so valuable!
Atomic weight power!
Grace and fluidity in movement.
